Last week saw a massive score of 75; almost 30 points above the average of 46. Here’s how the Differentials XI looked at the end of the week:
Forster’s clean sheet along with his penalty save saw him earn maximum bonus points in the game against Liverpool and gained him a ridiculous 17 points! Across the back 4 saw Monreal bag back-to-back clean sheets in his DGW without any bonus though meaning 12 from him. Evans and Vertonghen only managed 3 points between them as West Brom’s poor performances continue and Spurs’ title challenge collapsed. Leicester continued their upswing in form with Fuchs and Mahrez bringing in 17 together. Tadic’s assist and Giroud’s goal completed a good week all things considered.
Onto this week and we only have the small matter of 30 outings with bench boost active! Oh, it’s going to be a big one! I won’t bore you going through all the fixtures; given the hype this DGW has got around it, you’ve probably memorised the fixture list by now. Instead, here’s a quick run through with my thoughts and feelings.
Goalkeepers – Forster and Lloris. I would like to think at least 2 clean sheets is realistic from the 4 games.
Defence – I subbed out Blind for Otamendi due to the fact I have no idea what Mourinho’s going to do with team selection (I’m considering removing Mhkitaryan too). Looking at the fixtures, 4 clean sheets from 10 games doesn’t seem too much to ask, right?
Midfield – Henrik stays for now but I’ve still got one free transfer to play with. Sane’s fixtures stand out to have the largest potential for points but Tadic’s consistency means he keeps the armband.
Striker – If I decide to keep Mkhitaryan, I may swap out a striker. Gabbiadini, Giroud and Deeney are a slightly underwhelming threesome!
